Rhea Durham enjoyed modeling as a young adult, revealing in a 1997 interview that she liked “getting to travel around,” which she did for a while after being discovered at a mall when she was 14. But despite living a dream come true for many, she’s completely content with her role today — mom. “I know people might read this and think, ‘Ugh,’ but I love my life,” she told the now-defunct Cookie magazine in 2007 (via People). “It’s hectic and stressful at times. But I’m really happy. I love the traditions of family and home. Babies, kids, holidays — that’s what I’m good at.”
The mom, who launched a handbag line called Ella Grace in 2018, is a hero to husband Mark Wahlberg because of her efforts. “I owe a lot to my wife,” he told The Sun in 2008. “She has helped me become the man that I am and created a beautiful life for me and our children.'”
Aww. We think it’s safe to add Wahlberg’s quote to the list of sweetest things celebs have said about their significant others.
